    Default Question regading the word assign. Are the sentences correct?

    1) All the passengers have to sit in the seat that was assigned to them.
    2) Please sit in the assigned seat.
    3) Will a seat be assigned to me?

    #1 and #3 are fine.
    #2 is a little vague, It is clearer if you change 'the assigned seat' to 'your assigned seat' or 'the seat assigned to you'.
